Wild birds is one of the reservoir agent of some of various zoonotic diseases. The study was aim to see the potential of sparrow as the reservoir agent of Salmonella sp. using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method. We detected the invA gene of Salmonella sp. from faecal sample of sparrows (Passer domesticus) in local area of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A total of 30 faecal dropping samples were collected from sparrows. DNA was extracted from the faecal samples, then amplified by PCR for the target genes. The amplicons were electrophorized to see the visualization of DNA on the agarose gel. The result showed the prevalence of the positive result of Salmonella sp. was 3,3%. The study indicated that sparrows can spread zoonotic pathogens and this necessitates monitoring for the epidemiologic status of these pathogens among birds, also applying the appropriate intervention measures to prevent the transmission of zoonotic diseasesfrom birds to humans.
